She remembers the spandex and hair spray, bravado and bikini tops. They called her Little Egypt.

Those were the days when she would bash opponents over the head with trash can lids. She would tie a rope around their necks.

Little Egypt pulled hair, gouged eyes, bit into knees. She would take a running leap and kick Colonel Ninotchka in the solar plexus. Then, the music would start and Little Egypt would take a break to rap lyrics like, “When I start with my belly dance, the other opponents don’t stand a chance. I’ll beat them with Arabian style. I’m the hottest thing this side of the Nile.”

She remembers, too, her last match, the horrible end to the performing career she loved.
